This little guy was staring up at me when I looked out our back window this morning. He didn't seem at all fazed by me taking his picture, and hung out there for a long time!
Yesterday (Wednesday) was the blog tour for Perfectly Pieced Quilt Backs by Kelly Young, and if you missed it, you might want to check it out at her link here. I had fun making a project from the book and like how it turned out. Right now, the quilt is hanging on the back of the rocking chair in our living room, but after I wash and dry it, I'm planning to give it to my mom. It's about wheelchair quilt size, and while my mom is not in a wheelchair, she does have a favorite chair she sits in a lot, and she's always cold (!). Even in the summer.
I got on a Nancy Thayer kick this last week. Her books are always set on Nantucket, and are light reading - romance, family drama, lots of beach and island scenery. I was just in the mood for that kind of reading! Here's the book that got me started.
I think I'm on my third book of hers in a row now -
I just keep downloading ebooks from the library!
One perk of having our younger son come home for awhile is that he brought his Ninja pot. It's kind of an Insta-pot, Air Fryer, Slow Cooker all in one thing. I've been having fun with him teaching me to use it. One really good recipe we made was this one: Ninja Foodi Pork Tenderloin Carnitas.
And last, but definitely not least, back to our June topic - ice cream! Did we have ice cream trucks come through our neighborhood growing up? Oh yes! And, of course, we begged for money to go get a treat. I had to think for a bit to remember my favorites, but these came to mind - fudgsicles, creamsicles, crunch bars, drumsticks - lots of yummy goodies! But it took me awhile to come up with my real favorite, and I had to Google it to remember...
